The "Tooth Fairy" Visits Amarillo

With folks in Amarillo thinking about building a nuclear reactor, I guess it was only a matter of time before Richard Mangano, author of the infamous "Tooth Fairy Project," would come to town with his travelling snake oil show.

As we've mentioned many times before, there isn't one public health agency in America that has given Mangano's claims any credence. Once again, here's Ralph Andersen, NEI's chief health physicist:

Mr. Mangano's allegations of health effects associated with emissions from nuclear power plants have been reviewed in detail and repeatedly discredited by at least 8 state and 2 county public health departments, as well as the USNRC, as follows:

USNRC; State of Connecticut; State of Florida; State of Illinois; State of New Jersey; State of New York; State of Pennsylvania; State of Minnesota; State of Michigan; Westchester County, NY and Suffolk County, NY.

In fact, we are not aware of any federal, state, or local government public health departments that have reviewed Mr. Mangano's allegations and found them to be credible.
For the rest of our file on Mangano, click here. When are any of these newspapers going to do a background check on this guy?
